    To Etsy, or not to Etsy, that is the question

    That is one reason why we left Etsy in 2009 and started Handmade Artists', that way handmade could be front and center, instead of swallowed up with mass produced. Since I'm a chainmailler and upon many requests from others we actually have a chainmaille category on the front page LOL. Anyway there are not that many subcategories under it though as we do not have many chainmaillers on the site yet.. The fact that you're a chainmailler does make you unique, there are tons of jewelry makers online, but chainmaille in my opinion even though one of the older arts does not flood the market. There are quite a bit of maillers out there but by no means do they match the bead stringers.

    Had to make some, just a little, Byzantine!

    Only some people turn it green, my son actually turns is this weird yellow color. We can't get the original copper color back after he touches it, even after grinding in stainless steel shot. It is almost like he changes the properties of the copper.

    It is an order for a retail company that specializes in copper magnetic bracelets. He is trying to broaden his horizonz. We worked for about 3 weeks doing that. There were only 2 of us. We have been doing maille I think for about 7 or 8 years. The customer contacted us on our website and started the conversation, we didn't go looking for it. I'd rather you did the math on the order cost, we bought it from the Ring lord, so it is easy enough to figure out. I think I answered all your questions! LOL
  5. Well we had our largest special order to date. 195 16ga 5.5mm swg ring size. Coper and findings bought through the ring lord. Total ring count 21,990 Length laid side by side over 5' Lenght end to end if it were just one chain 1560" or 130' Just thought I'd share this as it was pretty cool, total weight is just under 20lbs, we haven't actually wieghed it yet.

    All I know is our pictures are finally off. I don't believe she actualy admitted to anyone that she was stealing. Maybe in her twisted mind she thought using other peoples pics was ok. All I know is her pics are horrible and I'm not sorry to say that I get some satisfaction out of that. I've watched my wife over the last 7 years read and study how to take better pics, the evolution has been amazing from our first pics to our most recent. The pics have been as much work or more than making the piece for us. She litterely has spents hours on end taking and re-taking pics.

    I did on a few of them. I also copied someone else who just filled a clain with my claim numbers. Not sure if they will put the puzzle together or not

    Hopefully they will remove her. I have had 6 images total removed by FB. Then she reposted one again and I reported from the original FB email sent back to me. So hopefully they will put the history together. What worries me is, I'm getting different responses from each claim, meaning from different people. so it is not like one person is handling this. I have no idea if there support sits in the same office or are spread out all over the world.

    she just put this one back up http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=393251500685626&set=a.275560495788061.79222.131605530183559&type=1&theater after FB already removed it from 2 locations. Sad thing is, FB has removed this image in particular 4 times so far in the last couple days and she keeps putting it back up. Whats even worse is this pic is over 3 years old and we don't even use it anymore. It is just the principle of it. It is the same piece as in my current avatar.
